Plane trip from Miri is 30 minutes in propeller plane. Stay the 3 days - lots to do. There is cheap accommodation at National Park but... More

Interesting experience - guide was very informative and friendly, the caves and forest was beautiful. If you are more adventurous and physically fit, recommend to go for the 3 day adventure route, where you hike up too many steps to count (slippery and steep), waddle through 2km of strong cold currents in the dark caves. A not so typical holiday... More

We stayed at the Mulu Park Resort and spent a couple of days visiting the caves. Firstly, we went to the Lang and Deer caves. The Lang cave is full of interesting rock formations and there are some great photos to be taken. The Deer cave nothing special until the sun goes down and millions of bats come streaming out....

fantastic walk through the jungle followed by a great cave with bats though it was bit smelly. The evening bat exodus is one of the spectacles wildlife. Well..the bats sometime leave by another entrance so not able to see.

My visit to Mulu caves was one of the most fascinating in my life. The sheer size of the caves was awesome - my guide said the largest (Sarawak) could easily contain eight Jumbo Jet aircraft nose to tail. Apart from its massive capacity and Guano sodden floors, the rock formation and scurrilous wildlife in the semi darkness was an... More

Took in all 4 show caves including the bats exiting Deer cave right on cue... Made all the steps, heat and humidity worthwhile. Ok, yes it was hot, we sweated lots and I don't want to see any more steps after those at Clearwater Cave... But sat back at the hotel glad we've done it and would highly recommend this... More

It was a sweaty experience but overall, good. We saw huge caves & some unusual formations. Suitable for everyone (except the very young & those with walking problems) as it is mostly walking inside the caves. A woman from China in our group was walking around for two days in high heels. Need to have headlamps or own torches.

He runs his team of guides to ensure you experience everything you need to whilst there with safety ensured. My personal experience was with Andy who's been one of the pioneers to hash the paths up the... More

So serene and beautiful here. The national park is well setup and we had a great time wandering around the Park HQ and nearby walks, as well as visiting the 4 main show caves. Deer Cave was stunning and the size took my breath away. Also really enjoyed the energy of the water in the Clearwater cave, and the swim... More

The largest cavern - can house 5 Boeing 747 inside the chamber. One highlight is the silhouette of Abraham Lincoln at the entrance of the main cave chamber. The cave is reputed to house 4 million bats.
